Firms that have ceased spending on Elon Musk’s social media platform, X, previously known as Twitter, in response to the posting of hateful and antisemitic content have been accused of engaging in “blackmail” by the billionaire, reports Breaking News.
This statement was made two days after his visit to Israel, where he visited a kibbutz hit by Hamas militants and held talks with key leaders.
In an on-stage interview at The New York Times DealBook Summit, Musk was told by host Andrew Ross Sorkin: “You’re clarifying this now, but there was a public perception that that was part of a apology tour, if you will… that this had been said online, there was all of the criticism, there was advertisers…” reports Breaking News.
“I hope they stop,” Musk interjected. “Don’t advertise. If someone is going to blackmail me with advertising, blackmail me with money, go f*** yourself,” he added, reports Breaking News.
